DIRECTIONS

  • Pour green tomatillo salsa in a saucer and cook in the microwave for about 30 seconds in high power, only to cook the green tomatillos.
  • In a blender, pour the cooked green salsa and avocado chunks. Blend them together just to pulse the bottom for about 8 to 10 seconds, leaving some coarse avocado pieces, so the salsa doesn't get too smooth.
  • Note: if want the sauce more liquid and smoth, just add some water in the blender, (or the sour cream for a creamy salsa if you prefer).
  • Pour in the saucer again and add the chopped pickled jalapeño, vinegar, chopped garlic clove and cilantro. Season with garlic salt to taste. Stir well.
  • Serve as a dipping sauce for grilled burgers, hot dogs, or over grilled chicken, steaks, pork or fish.
  • Or also in tacos, burritos, rice, refried beans, tostadas, tortilla chips or whatever you like. Mmmmm -- delicious.!
  • Note: it keeps green color all the time it lasts.
